"This award is further validation of the potential of Signum's IPC technology platform for the treatment of dermatological related diseases. We are excited about the continued support of the NIAID which was instrumental in funding our initial drug development program (rosacea - SIG990/DMT210), currently in Phase II clinical trials. We are pleased to be awarded this grant to continue delivering safe and novel treatments for skin disease," stated Maxwell Stock, President/CEO.
Signum has a successful track record of developing and out-licensing novel chemical entities in both the cosmetic and Rx dermatology space. Dr. Eduardo Pérez, CSO, stated, "Over the past decade we have built a robust medicinal chemistry and R&D team to mine our IPC library for new therapeutics. Building on the experience and momentum provided by SIG990/DMT210, we believe SIG1451 will provide an important additional, and potentially better, therapeutic option for those suffering from AD."
